Thanks! I figured I would show y'all some of the (failed) soaps I've made so far.
My very first batch. Hot process Castile
Ok so that didn't work out real well, so I decided to try an all natural recipe with doTERRA Serenity essential oil blend.
Ok, maybe that one wasn't quite a failure. I actually like it, I'm just hoping the scent stays put.
Next I failed at a unicorn poop drop swirl there is pink in there somewhere. But not where it's visible in any of the bars
Next was my peppermint soap. It was supposed to be a drop swirl, but set up WAY faster than I could work, so thought I'd do a hanger swirl, but I didn't have a hanger. I also decided to try out my stamp 2 days after cutting
Finally is my Cucumber Melon soap. It was supposed to be an infinity swirl, but I did the swirls in all the wrong places .
Oh well. I've had a blast learning and trying to beat the trace. Anyways, hope y'all get a giggle or two out of this. I certainly do every time I walk past the curing bars.
Welcome. I'm kind of new here, myself, although I've been creating soaps and balms, etc and reading and reading the posts. So, here's my take on your soaps:
1st batch - Looks like very rustic log cabin puzzle soap. What fun!
2nd Try - Reminds me of the soaps my mom used on my hair (a "thousand" years ago haha) and my hair was shiny!
Unicorn drop - Cute. Orange and Blue are complementary colors and the white is neutral - a colorful unicorn on a cloud - so it works for me.
Peppermint soap - Very Southwest looking - looks great for camping.
Cucumber Melon Finale - Looks like a dessert - soft (colors) and creamy.
All in all - I think you did a great job! Keep having fun! Oh, and by the way - Great stamp! Very sharp.
I'm currently trying to perfect bath fizzies and making my first Epsom salt cakes. ugh! hahaha.
Happy Soaping -
